I believe Ron Convers is in his late 50's and is 1011 rated. Recently won an A tier in the Open division.

Crazy John Brooks would have been a no brainer if he didn’t line up against Climo so often. One of those cases where playing against the GOAT takes the shine off you.

In my mind Feldberg always SEEMS like a legend, but his resume doesn’t really back it up. He was just so damn good for a couple years, especially his then record rated season. I will say he should get points for being the only disc golfer to make a major television appearance, and he actually did great on Conan in what could have been a very cringe segment.

Dr. Voakes was 1000 rated when he finished 4th in the 2000 worlds. Now I wonder if a 1000-rated guy has finished this well at any worlds in the last decade or so...I'm going to spend my extra time before work throwing with my son, though...
Darrell Nodland, 50+, 1033
The guy barely plays, but would win the "obscure legend" category... most likely the top rated 50+ player ever, and maybe the highest win percentage ever (admittedly padded by playing obscure events). I finally got to play his Patterson Lake course this past summer, and after that I am even more amazed to see the tournament scores he has put up on that course.

I know a few of you have brought her up, but those who have omitted Des Reading from the women's side, I'm curious as to why?

12 Majors (Including 3 FPO and 1 Women's Masters World Championships)
Roughly 29 NT wins
Roughly 62 A-Tiers wins

I mean...that's a monumental resume.

Juliana, who is frequently mentioned, has 6 Majors and 16 NTs.

Is the lack of Reading's inclusion because she only has three FPO Worlds, because she'd definitely make my list of legendary players.

Dave Feldberg who won a worlds title in 2009 helped create the Paten Pending with Berry, should be on the list, Also recently won the Masters 40+ division at PSDGA Masters Pro Worlds. He Puts on great stuff with Infinate his sponsor and can free talk about discs, Much needed an experianced player who still plays at a high level.

John E McCray, almost 50 (at 47-48 I think?) and still can compete from time to time in the National Tour/Pro Tour and be in the top 10 at the events in a Normal year. Impressive from a Master.

I would also Include Des Reading as she with Jay Reading had a bunch of PDGA world Doubles (Mixed?) titles to the names in addition to the 3 PDGA FPO Worlds.

Jay (Yeti) Reading too as he has a putter disc from Innova for all the Putting World Championships he won over the years, They made a KC like disc that was concave the way some old 10X KC would go for the discs he liked to use when putting until the Yeti Aviar came out.
